“First of all, targeted censuses must be carried out to have a detailed picture of the areas affected by the phenomenon. Secondly, containment measures must be put in place through ecological methods (for example electrified fences, and finally putting an end to illegal foraging), first, and subsequently with catches through manhole covers or catch fences that allow better control over the species, directing the withdrawals in such a way as not to determine the withdrawal of the adults and the disintegration of the herds". These are some of the interventions suggested by the WWF for the management of ungulates.
Selective control interventions
"In certain well-located circumstances - continues the environmental association - targeted selective control interventions can also be implemented, but entrusted to third-party and trained personnel". According to the WWF, “Umbria, like the rest of the country, is paying today for the choice of having entrusted itself for decades to the hunting world for the management of fauna.
The Umbrian Situation
This wrong choice is at the basis of the current situation, characterized by an excess number of wild boars in some areas of the region (in particular in the Egubino-Gualdese area) with consequent damage to agriculture and the risk of road accidents”. And "until wildlife management is separated from hunting management, the problems associated with an excessive presence of certain species will never find a solution".
